Situated where the Rio Grande River takes a big southerly dip in West Texas, Big Bend National Park covers a massive expanse of desert, woodlands, and grasslands full of rivers, limestone canyons, and high mountains. Nearly 2,000 species of plant and animal life call this place home.
Big Bend National Park is known for nature, trails, historic sites, scenic drive, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lost Mine Trail, and mingle with the ghosts of the past at Terlingua.

For traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park tour itinerary planner.

June in Big Bend National Park sees daily highs of 100°F and lows of 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
